As Nellie stated, Elson was not the most exciting PBP guy but he was all we knew and not once did I ever hear him knock a ballplayer either on the Sox or the other team plus he has a spot in the Hall Of Fame.

Bob Elson had perfected the slow monotone voice but there was no one better in my mind. To improve the Hawk and Steve show get rid of Hawk, the word blowhard, full of oneself, but most of all irritating.

Here is a coincidence, bought a new car up in Winter Haven yesterday and Hawk bought a car from another salesman at the same dealership about a month ago, said he was a great guy.

So what kind of car does the Hawk like to drive?

I believe it was a Hyundai Equus.

It was brought up because the salesman noticed my White Sox plate frame and my magnetic logo.

First off, Ed Farmer, needs to go, and he can take DJ with him. The Sox need a professional PBP man in the radio booth. For color they need to hire a new guy, with more Sox experience. I'm sick of hearing about DJ coming up through the Cubs system. Here's where they could break in a Aaron Rowand. (he's got to be better than Chris Singleton was).

I'm fine with Hawk and Stoney. I enjoy most of Hawk's stories and sayings, but that Matt Abbatacola thing needs to go away! Matt is a Cub fan, for crying out loud, and he has nothing to do with baseball, except he occasionaly talks about it on WSCR. It may be fun to say Abbatacola, but come up with another saying, Hawk!

I agree that not everyone will like the same announcer. I love listening to Hawk. And I don't want a "professional sounding" announcer coming to the Sox. All that ""bub-bub dubba-dubba" stuff drives me nuts.

Put on mlb network and listen to any of the clips and the only guys that sound different are Hawk and that annoying guy from the Yankees,

Russ Langer, who's the AAA Las Vegas guy, has been doing PBP with Melton for the spring training webcasts the last couple of years. I gather you'd consider him a "bub-bub dubba-dubba" guy, but he's pretty damn refreshing to hear after listening to our broadcast teams...

Probably meant guys who just drone on and on with mostly useless information. Dewayne Staats down here in Tampa is a perfect example.

I'm not positive, and that was my original reaction as well, but reading this on my phone at 5am had me laughing out loud.

I won't pretend to be overly familiar with Staats, but he probably imparts a lot less useless information than Hawk does.
